Default HELP. Oil in intake?!?!?!?!?!

I just changed my oil and put 5 qts of Mobil 1 in there and a new purolator pure one filter.

So I start it and bring it off the ramps and notice this puddle coming from my trans lines/abs module/airbox area. its neither brake fluid nor transmission fluid, so i'm doin a big WTF. so I open the airbox and see OIL, new oil, draining out of my intake right back into my air filter! WTH.

What just happened?!? How the HELL did oil just get from my crankcase to my intake?!

Video coming soon.

He told me it was fine and was rattling the way it should. He totally perplexed me on this one.

Yeah it did. The way he said it, as he was putting oil in the engine, it was coming out of the TB shortly after.

So the oil didn't come out of the airbox until after the car was running? Because I don't see how you could pour oil into a valve cover and have it travel out of the airbox right afterwards.

Yeah I think it was after it was running, I too couldn't see how oil would come out of the TB when not running.
